Aside

Why do we want to share an organ and multimedia concert with your audience?

Okay, sounds reasonable. Why would we want to share one of our organ and multimedia concerts with your audience?

  • Our concerts appeal to your complete audience with “Stories to Move you – Music to Thrill you – Visuals to Captivate you”
  • The music and narration provide the story; the visuals are the path on which the story travels.
  • We speak to the auditory person with some of the most stunning music written for the organ and captivating stories
  • We allow the visually oriented person see the background images that help create the story and also see the work the organist does
  • We engage the kinesthetic participant with the rhythm of the music, the pulse and emotion of the story, and the moving animations
  • It is an enriching experience to attend one of our concerts – Bach and SonsFrom Sea to Shining Sea or Around the World in 80 Minutes___________________________________________________________________________

A Grand Time Was Had By All

What a splendid afternoon!  We so enjoyed sharing our newest organ and multi-media concert experience, Around the World in 80 Minutes, with a full house at our West Coast Introduction on Sunday, January 29th at Nestucca Valley Presbyterian Church in Pacific City, Oregon.  The audience was fascinated with the wide diversity of the music of the world enhanced with stunning visuals and live camera feeds.  The official World-Premiere of this concert will take place in Wooster, Ohio as part of the fifth anniversary of the Music on Market Concert Series.  We invite you to visit our website, www.aroundtheworldin80minutes.org to catch the excitement of this new concert.

Dr. Jeannine Jordan, concert organist, and David Jordan, media artist, are the creators and performers of three organ and multi-media concert experiences, Around the World in 80 Minutes, Bach and Sons, and From Sea to Shining Sea.  Contact Dr. Jordan at jeannine@promotionmusic.org for information.

 

Spring performances of From Sea to Shining Sea

From Sea to Shining Sea

Jeannine and David Jordan had the privilege of presenting their organ and multi-media concert experience, From Sea to Shining Sea, to a variety of audiences in Des Peres (St. Louis), Missouri; Moorestown, New Jersey; and Akron and Athens, Ohio.

Invited for a return concert engagement following an audience-winning performance of the organ and multi-media concert, Bach and Sons, the Jordans returned with From Sea to Shining Sea to the Music at St. Paul’s Concert Series at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Des Peres, Missouri and to the First United Methodist Church of Moorestown, New Jersey where the concert was sponsored by an anonymous donor and the Southwest New Jersey AGO Chapter.

The Akron Chapter of the AGO and The Parish Arts Series of Fairlawn Lutheran Church in Akron were co-sponsors of the first concert in Ohio.  The spring concluded with a performance on the Organ Recital Series at The First Presbyterian Church of Athens.  Fifty high school students attended this concert – and for many, experienced a pipe organ for the first time – as part of the University of Ohio Summer Band Camp.  What a thrill it was to share the organ with these young musicians.

Following each of these concerts, it was the desire of the hosting organizations to include a second and even third performance by the Jordans of their unique live organ and multi-media concerts in an upcoming season.  Visit www.bachandsons.com, www.fromseatoshiningsea.net or www.aroundtheworldin80minutes.org to discover why you’ll want to bring one of these unique concert experiences to your sophisticated audience in the coming season. To schedule a performance of Bach and Sons, From Sea to Shining Sea or the Jordan’s newest organ and multi-media concert experience, Around the World in 80 Minutes, contact Dr. Jeannine Jordan at 541-905-0108 or jeannine@promotionmusic.org.

 

Get Serious

I.          Get serious

II.         Know what works for you

III.        Get around the right people

IV.        Build a team

V.         Get going

I.  Get serious

What? I am serious. Yes, I know, I know. Maybe things are fine the way they are and that’s nice, congratulations. Don’t break it if it doesn’t need fixing. But if you do want to take a step up a level or make some changes, here are a few tools that can help you get to where you might want to go.

You don’t have to change your life, just change your day.

Every day we come to, yes, a fork in the road. Like Yogi Berra said: “When you come to a fork in the road, take it.”  We come to many “fork-in-the-road” moments every day. And we take the fork — sometimes without even thinking about it. The question is, did you want to take the fork you’re on?

    A. You’ve got to want it more than you don’t want it.

We may not like the fork we took, but to choose not to take it again, you’ve got to want X more than you don’t want Y.  When you come to a fork in the road, take the one you really want.

Everything will exact a certain price from you—energy, effort, patience, resources. Remember, doing nothing will also exact a price from you.  There’s a difference between; “We are going to keep going until we have a predictably great program” to “Hmm… that was unpleasant.”

What do you think you want to get serious(er) about?__________________________
